    Was his son there? Did he try to stop it?
    If not STFU.
    It's the parents responsibility, if they let their kid have a party, to make sure there is no drinking and no crimes -like rape for example. .As the parent of unruly boys I can tell you it's hard but not impossible and the first step is to tell your children that any drinking will end the party. Your kids will be mortified. When they are older they will thank you.
    You are not your children's friend, you are their parent.
    There were wild parties at my place when I was gone. The neighbors called me. I called the sheriff. A bit extreme and we were all lucky the deputies who responded were not not in a mood for vengeance, my kids would have ended up with a record. I'm not sure I'd do that again.
    Parenting is so fucking hard.

    Topiary would've spelled "you're" correctly.

    On my estimation the heroes here are Jane Doe who had the guts to stand up to a town culture and Alexandria Goddard who got the ball rolling.

    When I was out of HS in 1959, I got my first job in downtown L.A. I had to work graveyard shift then as a beginner, and because I didn't have a car yet, I walked from 85th & Denker Ave. to Vermont & Manchester Ave. to catch the bus at 9:30pm each night. No one, I mean NO ONE bothered me on the streets. I remember one time as I sat on the bus bench at Vermont, a car of boys went by and whistled at me. I blushed as they went on their way.

    I walked each night to that bus stop for 2 years without any incident. THOSE were the good days!!
  14. Don't you love the United States justice system? My favorite part about it is the corruptness! They can kill whoever they want and I "DEFINITALY SUPPORT THAT!" Hell yeah Obama's perfect. Let him kill whoever he wants. I'm dripping with sarcasm! REALLY! Hell lets have a law forced against are will letting him become are absolute tyrant dictator!
    .... SO WHO HERE ISN'T WITH ME!?!?
    I most likely just went on rant about another subject... My bad. Lol

    What amazes me is people don't seem to learn. At least in Steubenville, people should have taken the point by now.

    I think the prosecutor Hemmeter is also one of the case's heroes.

    So, it's ok now for an under-aged person to get fall-down drunk? :rolleyes:

    OK, here's the straight answer:

    No, it's not OK.

    But it's not punishable by summary rape either.

    In the same way that parking in the wrong place isn't punishable by summary murder.

    Rape is the second-most-serious crime that there is (murder being the most serious, outside of genocide which is kind of a special case). Juvenile drinking is small potatoes by comparison.

    death by alcohol poisoning or other accident < underage drink to unconsciousness < rape
  29. fishypants Moderator

    In terms of seriousness of crime, yes.

    Because accidents aren't crimes at all.

    Underage drinking - even to unconsciousness - is a LOT less serious a crime than rape.

    It really is comparable to the difference between a parking offence and murder.

    If a teenager is silly enough to drink herself unconscious - and I'm not sure that is what happened in this case, she may have been drugged - then what her friends and the wider community should do is look after her until she's feeling better. Call her an ambulance if necessary. Hold her hair while she vomits. Not take advantage of her unconsciousness to use her body as though it were a sex doll.

    Underage drinking (and it sure sounds like roofies too) led to a incapacitated minor, and other minors with very impaired judgement who didn't help her, and impaired minors with unrealistic beliefs about their importance and entitlement who assaulted a incapacitated minor.

    Inebriated minors= very bad and illegal for minors and the stupid buffoon who bought them the alcohol. These guys need to stay away from alcohol. They make shitty decisions.

    Who's comparing rape and underage drinking? I don't read that in any post.

    The point is, rape is bad.

    Under age drinking (to excess) is stupid (cf. Stupidville). You could get raped (not that you deserved it, but sh-t happens) or some bad accident may befall you.

    No. Just stop it. No.

    You are saying that rape is a result of underage drinking. No it's not. Rape is the result of rapists thinking it's okay to rape someone. Drinking to excess is stupid because it makes you stupid, not because "somebody could rape you." Somebody could rape you if you were sober, surrounded by friends and dressed in a burqua. This isn't even about whether she "deserved it" it's about whether we as a culture treat rape like a hazard women are responsible for avoiding.

    No, that is not what I am saying. That is what you are reading into it.

    There are 2 lessons in this sad story.

    1. You are right. Rape is wrong.

    2. Drinking to excess is stupid. You don't have to link this to rape. Everyone seems to forget this, or if it is brought up, it is linked to rape and the idea is rightly flamed. Think about it, not in the context of rape, and it still makes sense. It's like saying someone who was in a car but wasn't wearing a seatbelt, and is hit by a drunk driver - drinking and driving is wrong, but not wearing a seatbelt is stupid.

    Bolded the problem. Rape is not a side effect of drinking. Try this instead:

    "Underage drinking is stupid. You could make a total vomiting ass of yourself and not remember it in the morning, or you could try to walk on top of a greenhouse and break your neck."
